The BBC spends bucket loads of money on digital services each year and yet access to its online content via I-Player is ridiculously restricted to the UK. Anyone overseas interested in anything shown recently on one of the BBC's channels has to hope that what you are looking for has been posted on YouTube, where it will always be broken up into 10 minute chunks. Its a big shame because Auntie could in fact take a bold step away from charging tax-payers in the UK the licence fee and make way more money from opening up its archives to corporations, institutions and individuals around the world. The planetary market place is several billion strong, with hundreds of millions of people willing to pay for content. Most people who are avid consumers of online news have already asked themselves the question, "what would I pay for online?" and many would include BBC content in their answer.
